Welcome, Aleks! (I wonder if I've managed to post before Christophe G)
Your introduction is just fine, (((and certainly a vast improvement over
the reception that certain persons who should know better have given other
new list members))). There are quite a few others here about your age, some
younger (not me!). Feel free to share your conlang(s). You might not always
get much response, but a lot of people will be reading it.
